GE Washer WDSR2080D5WW Transmission oil leak

the washer was found to have a good amount of oil standing underneath. The trans appears to havr a bad seal where pieces bolt together on the end of trans that is closest to the tub. Is this not replaceable? It seems the whole unit is for sale but nothing less than that. When running its clear that air, oil is escaping. Is standard gear oil ok, are there any nylon gears inside?

Have never seem rebuild kits for a GE but some might be there. If you don't own washer I would look for a different one.

If it's leaking around the seal where the two halves of the transmission bolt together, you can just use any form-a-gasket sealant from an auto parts store. If it's leaking at the oil fill hole, you can add oil there and seal it with silicone rubber. 90W gear oil is fine.
